Recently, at the direction of the Board, the TDSB surveyed a random sample of parents/guardians and students, and all secondary school teachers, to better understand their views and level of support for the Government of Ontario’s plan for mandatory e-learning for all secondary students. The TDSB Pulse Results are now in to show that most students, parents/guardians and secondary school teachers do not support the government’s plan to make e-learning a mandatory requirement for graduation, nor do they believe that it will benefit students. You can read and learn more about the results and read the Chair’s letter to the Minister:
Tomorrow is going to be a critical day for teachers, parents and students. It’s a day when the entire legislature is in session and will hear thousands of voices outside Queen’s Park in solidarity to oppose the proposal of massive cuts to education in this province. If you are planning on being at Queen’s Park tomorrow and you wish to join with our teachers from Frankland, they are meeting at 9:45am by the Firefighters’ Monument (see map). If you are arriving a bit later, Frankland teachers will be in the Ward 15 area for the duration of the rally (also see map) Bring your ENERGY, bring your VOICE and remember that every single board in the entire province will be out tomorrow. This has not happened in over 20 years!
Tomorrow evening, Thursday, Feb 20th 7pm to 9pm at Earl Haig Public School: Q&A Session with TDSB Director of Education and Trustee Jennifer Story.
Frankland parents are welcome to attend!
Generational Leadership: Preparing Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Jobs
Join Canadian Club Toronto on February 12 when The Honourable Stephen Lecce discusses what these changes mean to him, and how the Ontario government is setting up today’s students for the jobs of tomorrow.
Globalization, technological progress and a new demographic of workers are creating a profound impact on labour markets. There is an increasing demand for STEM, financial literary, technological fluency and soft skills. How can we manage this transition?
Minister Lecce will be joined in conversation by Adrienne Batra, Editor-in-Chief of the Toronto Sun.

The Lunch Mom will offer credits for any days affected by a strike!
Term three hot lunch pricing will include a $6 credit for any days affected by a strike. So if, for example, we miss one Tuesday and two Fridays, Tuesday Term 3 lunch pricing would be reduced by $6 and Friday Term 3 pricing by $12.
Let’s reduce waste this Valentine’s Day as much as possible, and definitely by not buying single-use cards! 💚
